Tes Safeguarding: Over 1.7 million courses taken in 2020 image

2020 was a tough year for schools in so many ways, but most challenging and important of all was their ability to ensure that students remained safe while classrooms were shut and learning for the majority took place online.

How did your school ensure that staff were equipped with the knowledge and confidence to support students in these isolating times? Many schools turned to Tes Safeguarding, our flexible online safeguarding and duty of care training package, to provide their staff with up to date training on the issues that came to the fore.

In total 1,733,274 courses were taken in 2020  – that’s an average of 4,749 courses per day.

Mental Wellbeing in Children and Young People 120,240 completions

Collaborative buying power and autonomous reporting

Equals Trust case study image

In the three years that primary multi-academy trust Equals Trust have been using Tes Safeguarding their staff have accessed 3,276 courses.

They’ve gained both flexibility and control over their safeguarding training and reporting, and made big savings. If they’d bought all the courses their staff took individually it would have cost seven times as much.
